Progressive Metal meets rythmic populous. Punctuated transitions of the sonic minority. Departure from metropolis, arrival of no stoppin us. Syncopated cessation from the popular template. Based in Fort Collins ,Colorado, WIDE is an all-original rock quintet with is roots coalescing from the Midwest and the South. WIDE rescues the listener from tiresome repetition. Solid composition combined with skilled instrumentation creates a new sound. Tryiing to describe the WIDE sound is like tryng to impart how jambalaya tastes to someone who has never tried it. One can describe the ingredients that comprise the dish, which would be familiar to most, but it would be difficult to accurately relate how those elements combined, determine the whole. So it goes illustrating the WIDE sound through words to the uninitiated. One could say that their use of odd meter touches on TOOL......or that they have some strange use of juxtaposition in the vein of MR. BUNGLE. Dark mood flavorings reminiscent of THE DOORS emerge as well as the straight up groove rock element found in CLUTCH. WIDE goes beyond their influences to create their own unique sound, not easily encapsulated or categorized in a few succinct, revealing words. That being said, WIDE thrives on "heavy, weird, indigenous, rock". After many incarnations, the seed of the current lineup of WIDE germinated in the summer of '00. They have since spent their time writing new material and playing shows throughout the northern Front Range area from Cheyenne to Denver, including gigs at the Bluebird Theater in Denver and the Aggie Theater in Fort Collins. They have also self-produced, recorded and designed their demo CD "length x girth"
